Here's a list of some places where I had lunch in Paris last week.
Les Deux Abeilles
Chèvre pie with green salad, a glass of home-made ginger lemonade and pear-rasberry crumble with cream.
The place has such a typical French atmosphere.
Laduree is not just macarons - they serve lunch as well.
Plain omelett with green salad and afterwards my favourite macaroons: orange blossom, liquorice, vanilla and salted caramel.
I also had some violet scented black tea.
I just love this place!
Bought some violet & orange blossom tea to take home.
21, rue Bonaparte, 6e
ps. Laduree on rue Royale is closed for renovation.
Saturday brunch at Mariage Freres on rue du Bourg-Tibourg.
Le Classique includes fresh squeezed orange juice, brioche toast served with Gelees extra de the, scrambles eggs with seasoned with Sel Matcha, grilled shrimps skewer, smoked salmon spring rolls and strawberry cake.
Rainbow Spirit includes juice, toast and dessert as above and salmon tartar, tea-flavoured wasabi-avocado coulis, lotus chips, celeriac, mizuna greens, pink radish and ground cherry.
I chose the orange blossom tea.
As a big tea drinker couldn't just walk away without buying some tea to take home: Earl Grey Imperial, Earl Grey French, Sakura green tea and Paque green tea.
Paris is not just beautiful buildings but also full of stunning and sometimes even funny details.
(I guess a Finnish fashion designer who btw is the main men's wear designer for Givenchy, lives behind these massive red doors in Marais...)
Makes me smile!
I can highly recommend Hotel Eden if you like walking (I don't mean the stairs, there's a lift!) but the 15. district is a bit far from the main attractions. Of course, you can commute by metro (the nearest station is Vaugirard) or just take a taxi.
